T.J. Oshie: C3PO

T.J. Oshie has taken on a huge role with the Washington Capitals just like C3PO has been a huge part of the first six Star Wars movies. Oshie has blended in well with his new team just like how C3PO got along very well with everyone on his “team”. Oshie seems like a person who is quite easy to get along with and darn near impossible to hate. C3PO is the same way. He might be a bit clumsy, but at the end of the day, Stars Wars probably couldn’t have had some much success without C3PO.

Oshie is really good in shootouts. You could argue that he’s the best in the NHL at what he does. His shootout moves are so good, one might say that they’re borderline… robotic. C3PO is a robot. Need I say more? In interviews, Oshie is professional and courteous almost to the point where it’s comical. C3PO was hilarious in Star Wars for the same reason. He’s created some memorable gifs and moments during his brief tenure in DC just like C3PO has become a fan favorite among Star Wars fans.

C3PO and R2D2 were a great duo together. They had some excellent moments together. Oshie has even managed to find his R2D2. We’ll revisit this topic in just a second. C3PO probably wouldn’t be a good skater because he’d trip over himself the entire time, but outside of that, Oshie and C3PO are pretty similar.
